Abstract: AD Online Patching(ADOP) as a utility eases the burden of constantly taking an outage to apply an E-Business Suite patch, however with that ease comes a complexity that can only be overcome with experience, creativity and an understanding of the documentation. This session aims to get you across pitfalls you may experience while using the utility. Walk you through scenarios you are likely to face when applying patches to multiple nodes and explain concepts like fs_clone and cleanup_mode = full. The session will be interspersed with interesting anecdotes and challenges I’ve encountered and resolved.

Objective 1: Perform patching of multiple nodes i.e. Master & Slave(s)

Objective 2: How to patch a single node in a multi node environment

Objective 3: How to abandon a patching cycle
